German Dual Curricula to Improve School to Employment Transition: A Case Study
Stephens, Maria Cecilia Noche
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The German Dual System is a model educational and employment approach that other nations could emulate. The ability of young apprentices to work and study at the same time to gain both practical and theoretical skills leads to more meaningful education and decreased dropout and youth unemployment rates. The collaboration of the government, agencies, Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Chambers of Crafts, unions, employers, and vocational school stakeholders helps build a robust system that would increase youth qualification for employment. More important, the system benefits a country that is dependent on a skilled workforce to boost its export-intensive economy. The exploratory, multi-source, single case study focused on how the German Dual System curricula led to advantages in education and employment that Germany's young apprentices are experiencing. Future researches should include the Dual Systems of the German-trained developed and developing nations to see whether the same outcomes are experienced by youth.
